Sound — 6
In this case for this amp it's sort of like "You get what you pay for." But I'm not saying the sound is bad or anything it's just that I don't really like little, tiny, small 1-watt feeling you get from this amp. I play this amp with a Squier 51 so it doesnt't sound amazing, but I must amit this amp has some awesome Distortion. I play various styles of music so this is probably the best thing for me.

Overall Impression — 5
Overall Impression would be that I mostly play rock sort of stuff so I wouldn't really want another one of these, and if it were stolen I just don't want another cause I'm hoping that I'll get a better amp. The only thing I love about this amp is that I like it's channels such as R-Fier which I do most of my rocking on. This compared to any other amp, I'd have to say this is the smallest.

Reliability & Durability — 6
I've had this amp for nearly 1 year now and the reliability and durability hasn't had a single thing hasn't gone wrong while moving it around, and it seems like a sturdy machine so I wouldn't worry about it you could just buy another if you wanted to soon as it's so cheap.

Features — 8
This amp probably has some of the most features ever for the price and size, and also the volume has quite some pontention. This amp has 6 different channels such as the acoustic which serves its purpose for those acoustic loving people, it has JC clean channel which is just a very smooth and clean sound which would work well with pedals, black panel, brit combo, classic stack which is like a 1980's grunge and finally R-fier which is a really heavy grunge. There are effects such as delay, reverb, chorus, flanger, phaser and tremelo.

    ive had this amp for like nearly a year now, i think this is probably the best, i repeat the best beginner and it so really light to carry around so i only recomend to beginners because this amp is NOT a gigging Machine, so just buy something better if your a bit more advanced (this is just my opinon so you should think for yourself).
    with the mic-preamp , can you like sing trough this amp?
